Animal Bookmark Ideas and Free Patterns

It’s time to catch up with your reading, and crochet can help you do it.

Although crocheters often often read as their other major hobby, there is little overlap between the two… until now that is. Indeed, one of the most enjoyable ways to enjoy your favorite pastimes is to combine them. Thus, here are some ideas for an animal bookmark that you can crochet and enjoy when reading. Of course, these placeholders will also make great presents, whether you give them on their own or as an addition to a book. Either way, you’re in good stead with these fun, wonderful and attractive knickknacks.

Book Rat Bookmark

To begin with, here is a classic rat-themed animal bookmark. Without a doubt, these are perennial favorites that will be loved by all.

Giraffe Bookmark

Although unusual, this animal bookmark is an almost obvious choice. After all, the giraffe’s long, thin neck is a no-brainer for transforming into the bookmark’s ribbon.

Skills: easy      Designer:  Ashlea Konecny
